    As a card modeller who served on the Canberra i am trying to get hold of a card model that was prodeuced of this great ship.The model was designed by Ken and Rex Carr and printed by WJ Thurman in the late 60s or early 70s.The great white whale is no more and would love to build this kit.If by some fluke anyone has it lying around or a scanned copy they could send me i would be forever happy
    cheers:thumb:

    You may have to settle for a 1/600 Airfix model.
    You can still get Canberra bombers though:mrgreen:
    Scans of models are usually a no-no due to copyrite, & also the fact that the scans are usually extremely poor quality.

    Zathros,
    The item you linked to may be a print of a painting, not a model.

    Thanks ASTROBOY, You have saved the day again!! I loved that series when I was a kid, though I always imagined he had to move really fast if those fins on his head were going to give him any control! :)
